McNeese Women’s Basketball Invited To WBI Tournament
For the second straight year, the McNeese Women's Basketball has been invited to WBI Women's basketball tournament.
Last year, the Cowgirls made it all the way to the championship game.
After advancing to the Women's Basketball (WBI) championship game a year ago, the McNeese State Cowgirls have earned their second consecutive WBI bid and will travel to face Northern Kentucky at 6 p.m. on Thursday in first round action.
The Cowgirls, the No. 6 seed in the West Region, are one of 16 teams selected to the field and will play the winner out of No. 2 seed College of Charleston and 7th-seeded USC Upstate game on Saturday should they advance to the next round. A possible matchup with 4th-seeded Stephen F. Austin awaits in the semifinals should both teams continue to advance. SFA knocked the Cowgirls out of the Southland Conference Tournament in the semifinals three days ago.
Grand Canyon is the No. 1 seed in the West Region while Eastern Michigan is the No. 1 seed in the East Division.
McNeese (19-13) will be making its fourth consecutive national postseason appearance (NCAA 2011 and 2012) and WBI (2013 and 2014) and are coming off its 15th Southland Conference appearance, including a fourth straight semifinal setting.
